This formula is appropriate for both hummingbird and oriole feeders. Experts believe that it closely approximates the sweetness and consistency of the nectar naturally found in flowers.
Mix 1/4 c. sugar and 1 c. water in a cup or jar.
Stir briskly with a spoon until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Pour the mixture into a clean hummingbird or oriole feeder.
Cover any unused nectar and refrigerate for up to five days.
